‘Tebow Law’ for homeschool sports finds support
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – After years of trying, a bill allowing
home-schooled children to play sports at public schools may have
found the conservative Virginia General Assembly it needs to become
law. Called the “Tebow Law” for Denver Broncos quarterback Tim
Tebow, who was a Florida home schooler, there are three House bills
that would open public school stadiums and gyms to children who
aren’t enrolled there. Advocates say home school families pay school taxes and deserve access to sports teams. Opponents, including state teachers and superintendents groups, say it would wreck eligibility requirements and leave public school teachers, students and their families resentful.
